Ostiense and Street Art
The Ostiense neighborhood, running from the 1st century BC Piramide to Basilica San Paolo, is a site-specific art enclave. With street art as a must see-in Rome, galleries like 999 are collaborating with artists to bring interesting projects including site specific pieces and multi-media events to the neighborhood. Artists Herbert Baglione, Moneyless, JB Rock, Lucamelonte + Hitness, Sten & Lex, ROA, Mr. Klevra, Blu and Agostino Iacurci are among the many greats to have tagged incredible large-than-life murals across the neighborhood, creating a dynamic and ever-growing environment of living artists and more and more murals. The 2013 mural Your Act by StenLex was created for the Garbatella micro-neighborhood and almost fully sponsored by crowd-funding.
